    Ok, I left out a step: the DISM command requires that a source for Windows 10 be available to make repairs. I forgot that I made these changes before I ran the initial set of instructions.
    Try this first, then run the other steps:

    press WindowsKey+R, type gpedit.msc and press Enter.
    Click "Computer Configuration", click "Administrative Templates", click "System", and then double-click the "Specify settings for optional component installation and component repair" setting.
    Select "Enabled", click check box for "Contact Windows Update directly...." - apply and OK

    It says "windows cannot find gpedit.msc", which, I'm guessing is because I have the home edition of Windows 10. Am I right in saying that home editions don't have gpedit?

    I suspect you are right, search for (windows-key+Q) "edit policy"

    Thanks a lot to Protector for taking the time to help me.

    In the end I got it fixed by contacting customer support and giving them access to my computer.

    Im struggling with an update error. Got to this thread via link in another getting Security Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package (KB2538243) - Error 0x80070643
    When I run sfc scannow I get
    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
    of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
    example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
    supported in offline servicing scenarios.
    I looked at the log file but dont understand any of it

    I did the gpedit but didnt see the checkbox for "Contact Windows Update directly...."
